FDA Approval Spurs Nasdaq to Cross All-Time High

FDA Approval Spurs Nasdaq to Cross All-Time High

Wall Street exhibited a huge surge on Monday. The Nasdaq rallied and crossed the all-time high. The reason was FDA’s full approval to the Pfizer vaccine. 

All major stock indexes of the U.S., including the S&P 500 were seen showing sharp highs while closing. However, S&P 500  couldn’t mark a record-high at the close. 

The rallying crude prices caused by the demand growth is making energy shares surge. 

According to Peter Cardillo,  the Chief Market Economist, Spartan Capital Securities, New York, commented that the same has been happening all along. They touch a new high, then slip, and once they are off to the races once again. He added that all this reflects that fundamentals are in place. He stated that though there are things to worry about, it was only a matter of time till the market bounces back.

The Food and Drug Administration of the U.S. has granted complete approval to the coronavirus vaccine developed by BioNTech and Pfizer Inc to accelerate the vaccination drill in the United States. 

Peter said that the full approval from FDA means that there are going to be mandates for getting the jab. Additionally, the companies will ask only vaccinated employees to join back and similar mandates are likely to be anticipated. He added that it probably won’t inspire everyone, even people who doubt the efficacy of vaccines to get the jab but the news may push the count closer to 75% of the total population.

The same has spiked shares for BioNTech and Pfizer by 9.6% and 2.5%, respectively. The vaccination drill is benefiting the companies from all ends. Joining the race, Moderna Inc has gained 7.5% on the charts. 

The coming days aren’t easy as a new variant of COVID-19, more infectious than the previous one has been found. But the tough times call for tougher measures.
